Boasting the classic Glenlivet flavour profile, wrapped up in a creamy and delightfully smooth texture, The Glenlivet 15 Year Old French Oak Reserve is an expression that plays tribute to the one who started it all.
Using a method by founder George Smith, the whisky is matured in carefully selected Limousin oak casks, usually reserved for wine, which adds delicate overtones of the spices highly prized in fine wines, while perfectly complementing the subtle elegance of the original malt.
The selective use of these casks gives this single malt a well-balanced sweet and smooth taste. Its flavour is sprinkled with citrus fruity tones, complementing its pale gold colour.
The nose has an intense and sweet aroma with hints of citrus fruit and cedar wood. The taste is well structured with an interplay of fruits and spices. This is a beautifully balanced, rich and mellow whisky with a long creamy finish that both connoisseurs and enthusiasts will love.
